New Assistant Director of Nursing for 2N Unit Announced
Iredell Health System has announced Charles “Chuck” Wolfe III as the newest assistant director of its Two North Nursing Unit.
The assistant director prescribes nursing care, delegates nursing activities, and coordinates the assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of patient care. They work with the director in the coordinating and directing of staff and patient care activities.
Wolfe holds an associate of science in nursing from Davidson County Community College and a bachelor of science in nursing from the University of Phoenix.
Wolfe has been with Iredell Health System for three years, serving as a registered nurse in the Four North Nursing Unit, clinical coordinator in Infusion Care Services, and clinical project lead in Information Services. He has more than eight years of experience in healthcare, including as a nursing supervisor and assistant director of nursing with Universal Healthcare & Rehabilitation.
“Being an employee of Iredell Memorial for three years now, I knew that we gave exceptionally high quality care,” Wolfe said. “Late last month, I witnessed just how exceptional it was. After bringing my husband in to be seen in our emergency department for what appeared to be minor cardiac issues, he was admitted to the Two North Nursing Unit and found to have a major blockage in his heart. Before that weekend, I was excited and looking forward to leading this floor. Today, I am more than excited, I am beyond proud to be the new leader of the team. The care they provide is phenomenal.”
Wolfe’s experience allowed the Health System the opportunity to promote from within.
“We are very excited that Chuck will be joining our nursing leadership team,” said Becky Quate, vice president of nursing and patient care services for Iredell Health System. “As a unit coordinator in Infusion Care, Chuck showed his ability to lead a team and to collaborate with Information Services to assist with the building of the EMR for our Skilled Nursing Facility. I’m certain he’ll utilize those talents as he transitions into his new role as assistant director.”
